Against this background, the course aims firstly to tackle the theoretical aspects relating to the entry of non-citizens in national political communities, with implications in terms of the multicultural polity building. Secondly, the course addresses the law in practice, from the dual perspective of domestic law and European and international law. Finally, a module is dedicated to the migrant workers status.
